Thirteen years ago I began my search for the “perfect” school for my daughter.
My second child was on the way yet I was struggling with making the right choice for my number one. I started visiting schools to learn about the many choices available. I wanted to feel confident that she was going to be in a caring and structured environment with teachers and peers who loved her as much as I did. Most importantly, I wanted her to get a great education.
I eventually found the special place I was searching for, Lakehill Preparatory School. I knew the morning that she and I entered her new kindergarten classroom that I had found everything that I was looking for. The smaller class size, the one-on-one attention, and, most importantly, the enthusiasm of her dedicated teachers, confirmed that she was in the right place. The warm, nurturing environment made our entire family feel at home.
Here we are in 2016, and my little girl is now a senior in high school. Over the past 13 years, she has grown into a confident student, athlete, and leader. She takes great pride in her school, her team, and in the organizations she leads. She cannot wait to get to school each day, and is often there on days when there is no school. It is hard to keep her away! Her teachers and coaches continue to challenge and support her each and every day. At Lakehill, she has developed confidence, independence, and the desire to continue to improve.
From the earliest years in Lower School, through memory work, storytelling, and creative writing, she began to develop her fearless public speaking skills. In Middle School, she learned about trial and error, how to study, and how to stay organized. She developed the skills she would need for high school, and learned that success felt good.
Because of the skills she developed in the early years at Lakehill, her transition to Upper School was seamless. She learned to trust and appreciate her teachers, something I know will help her in college. She was encouraged to pursue her desire to lead, and along the way developed the skills to be a good leader.
Lakehill is a place where students discover new interests and talents and are encouraged to use them. The faculty, coaches, and administrators listen closely to the students and encourage them to try new things, ultimately helping them to develop into the very best version of themselves.
Because of Lakehill Preparatory School, my daughter is prepared, motivated, and confident in her academic, athletic, and leadership abilities. She is comfortable with her teachers, and knows she can count on them to help her reach her full potential.
And that second child I was expecting when we began our frantic search? He just began his eighth year at Lakehill and I love watching him as he grows and flourishes. Did we make the right choice all those years ago? I have no doubts.
